What is a B Corp™?
Certified B Corporations® (B Corps™) are for-profit companies that use the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. They meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. As of 2018, there are more than 2,500 B Corps in 130 industries and 60 countries around the world.
What is the Certification process?
The process uses credible, comprehensive, transparent, and independent standards of social and environmental performance.
What is the B Corp™ assessment process?
The assessment process measures a company’s performance in five categories: governance, workers, customers, community, and the environment.
What is the B Corp™ Declaration of Interdependence?
We envision a global economy that uses business as a force for good.
This economy is comprised of a new type of corporation—the B Corporation—which is purpose-driven and creates benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders.
As B Corporations and leaders of this emerging economy, we believe:
- That we must be the change we seek in the world.
- That all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.
- That, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm, and benefit all.
- To do so requires that we act with the understanding that we are dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.
